KISS ALIVE II! Need I say more? I was 8 years old when I first saw and heard this album. Up until this time I was being raised on the likes of Ernest Tubb, John Denver, Waylon Jennings and such. Then one day I walked into my grandmothers house and heard my uncle listening to something extremely loud! I asked what it was and he showed me the album ALIVE II. That did it! Today it is by far the loudest recorded live album I have ever heard. KISS was way before their time. From the opening explosions of “Detroit Rock City” to the screaming chant of “we want kiss” following “Shout It Out Loud”, this album is still rocking heavy almost 25 yrs later! Check out Ace Freyleys intro to “King Of The Nightime World”, his guitar sounds like a screaming siren not to mention the rest of his blistering fingerwork! I have owned this recording on 8track, vinyl, cassette, and currently Cd. This is music worth listening to over and over and it still rates and sounds fresh with todays heavy new artist. If you have a chance to catch KISS live I promise you it will be a show that you never forget! If you don’t see them live, this record is the next best thing. One listen to this and I think you will agree why KISS is called “The hottest band in the world!” Crank this one!
